Coalition donates over 200,000 meals as COVID-19 palliatives
Givefood.ng, a coalition of partners working to provide food and nourishment to Nigeria’s vulnerable communities, has donated over 200,000 meals (in three months of operation) to vulnerable Nigerians.
This was part of the objective to meet and exceed its target of providing 1 million meals to those most in desperate need as health and government officials continue to deliver a strong coordinated response towards curtailing COVID-19 in the country.
A statement from Ben Eremen, Media Relations Officer, said the initiative would continue to leverage technology and existing food supply chains to scale the great work of grass-roots level community and religious organizations.
“To increase support from anyone in the Nigerian diaspora as well as open-hearted international community, we have implemented a PayPal payment option across all Givefood.ng platforms. Thanks to this improvement, more people can share their resources seamlessly,” the statement said.
The not-for-profit organisation has partnered with Coca-Cola to ensure it feeds more Nigerian families in desperate need, stating that, “As a coalition partner, Coca-Cola will help spread the word about the GiveFood.ng initiative, using its superior marketing experience and help provide proper hydration to the recipients of food packs within the initiative.”
Coalition founder, Kola Masha, CEO of Babban Gona, said: “We are very proud of these sets of achievements. The massive support we have received from individuals and organisations has been exceptional and is the root of our initiative’s success thus far. I believe that in no time, we will distribute 1 million meals and be active all across Nigeria.”
